eerie. robin curnow joins us now. we hear pistorius may have feared someone breaking into the house and that's what happened. were there signs that reeva had planned to stay for the night? >> reporter: just to go back to that, i've heard that last message from her over and over again in the last 24 hours, and it still gives me the chills. it's just so sad, isn't it? but in terms of what she was planning to do that night, it seems, according to an official close to the investigation, that she was going to be at her boyfriend's house spending the night. they've apparently foupd her overnight bag as well as her ipad in the room. so that in a way does sort of change that initial speculation that oscar had been surprised. perhaps she had snuck in for a valentine's surprise, and that's why he had shot her. it was a terrible mistake. she still don't know what the details are, what the context is. why shoot somebody through a closed bathroom door? still no real understanding of the motive behind that. i think it's this confusion and the sense of unanswered questions that have not just the f

shots at a van carrying seven people. they were also charged with using firearms while under the influence of alcohol. the charges had been dropped but were reinstated days before the pistorius case broke out. inside the hot, stuffy courtroom the judge called him to grill him about his handling of the case against the olympic athlete asking him "did you request records from reeva steenkamp's cell phone, did she receive text messages between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m.?" both his response, "i don't know." when final arguments got under way in the bail hearing the defense insisted the evidence shows oscar pistorius did not commit murder saying, if pistorius really wanted to kill his girlfriend, he would have done it in the bedroom, that her empty bladder is consistent with someone simply getting up and going to the restroom in the middle of the night. they say that steenkamp probably locked the door frantically as she heard pistorius shouting at a burglar and insists pistorius carried her downstairs to take her to the hospital desperate to save her life. the defense argues that oscar pi

, more especially as we discussed today, being a person who has to use prosthesis and whilst ad nit knell has argued but why, in the same vain, would the accused get involved in a fight at melrose arch, or discharge a firearm under the table? i think what we are seeking to establish is the ends to which one would go to save himself, and in advocate knell's scenario i don't think that falls so much for consideration. the issue before me is whether this accused, being who he is, and with the assets that he has in the country would possibly want to seek to duck and dive all over the world when, even by the state's own concession, he may at worst case scenario face cull possibly whom tide. in as much as the minimum sentence legislation may be applicable there is a professionition for special circumstances or substantial and compelling circumstances which would cause the trial judge to deviate so it may not necessarily be the case that he is now committed to face 15 years imprisonment or life in prison. i cannot find that the accused or i cannot find that it has been established that the accus
